Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Emergency Update coming soon.

This is sort of... unplanned and was absolutely not expected to happen so soon, but since next week will feature a new Linden Release that will either contain the new HTTP stuff or Fitted Mesh, both of which may fuck up the Viewer in some way or another, i decided to make an "emergency" update that will contain either both or atleast the important one.

So... yes. Update confirmed. Half Life 3 confirmed aswell.


  1. Hey Nirans ,

    Hey there Niran,
    I got a issue with this new update im trying to find out what that issue
    is i hope you can help me, i downloaded Maintenance Update
    when i log in everything flickrs when i uncheck vertext shader
    it stops flickring im also not getting any shadows and it looks
    like low graphics depht of field and those greyscales dont work
    aswell everything worked fine for me with the version
    black dragon (2.3.2) all the newer updates after that did the same
    with the flickr etc. So i was wondering if its my graphic card
    or perhaps something else ?

    Your system (probably GPU) has a problem with the new shaders used since the implementation of the new particle render system. I will need your crashlogs. Log in, do some stuff, enable Vertex Shaders, Deferred and stuff and upload your log somewhere where i can take a look into it. In meantime you could also take a look at drivers, they may be outdated or even too new if you recently updated them.

    1. Your issue should be fixed with the next update. The issue was caused by a regression that was introduced with some changes but where only fixed very shortly after i made the latest update. This is also the reason the normal Second Life viewer might work fine for you since it has this fix included already which my latest update didnt.

  2. thats awsome !!! thanks alot

  3. Awsome news :) i found yer viewer just a few days ago since i needed something that could push up the graphics on my new comp ^^ And so far it works really well. only thing is that i miss some features. that however is a minor thing since i know that will pop in in the future, Best of luck :D

  4. awesome! love the controller support, now i dont have to use joy2key or xpadder. thanks! one question? passive stereoscopic support maybe sorta someday please maybe *begs*

  5. One question, Niran, is there a way to have just a chat bar on? without having the chat box open? ty

    1. Seperate the local chat and then minimize it (close history) and it should be just a chatbar with floater header.
